This past Saturday the Myhellofalife crew did a kayaking adventure in Bayou St. John. Bayou Kayaks was perfect for our adventure. Their motto is “We’ll get you in the water and paddling on Bayou St John so you can enjoy a little piece of the Sportsman’s Paradise right here in the Big Easy. Paddle from our launch site up the bayou to Orleans Ave and down to Robert E Lee Blvd, and experience the city from a new perspective.”
The Bayou is home to a wide range of flora and fauna. Maybe you’ll spot a pelican swooping down for a fish, or spy the egrets, herons, ducks, loons and more. The route sweeps through residential areas with an array of architectural styles from French Colonial to lavish modern manses.
The total route distance is about 8 easy miles round trip, perfect for beginners and experts. This was a very affordable adventure, where the cost was only $20.
